Carbon Fast this Lent

Tomorrow, Lent begins with Ash Wednesday. During this time of year, we reflect upon that which separates us from our Creator and seek to renew our relationship with God by fasting from the actions and objects with separate us. Our failure to steward creation is one sin which erodes our relationship with God. This Lent, Earth Ministry/Washington Interfaith Power and Light invites you to join us in a fast from carbon.  By prayerfully reducing our carbon footprints, we can care for creation while reconnecting with the Creator.

As we journey through Lent, we offer you these carbon fast resources:

2012 Daily Carbon Fast Calendar--Earth Ministry/Washington Interfaith Power and Light once again is offering our popular Carbon Fast calendar. Each day offers a new daily action to reduce your carbon footprint this Lent.

Lenten Prayer and Action Guide--This Lent, Earth Ministry/Washington Interfaith Power & Light has partnered with the City of Seattle’s Office of Sustainability and Environment to produce a new carbon fast prayer and action guide. Designed for small groups within a congregation, the curriculum focuses on taking action in three areas of our life with a large impact on carbon emissions: diet, transportation, and energy efficiency.

Blessings to you this Lenten season!
